Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the innovator in global cruise travel, with a 56-year history of breaking boundaries, has teamed up with Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and TimePlay Inc. to bring “Wheel of Fortune Interactive” aboard 16 of its vessels by Spring 2024.
Set in the main theater and powered by TimePlay’s innovative interactive technology, guests can enjoy as a spectator, or play along in the center of the action from their mobile devices. They’ll compete live against fellow cruisers to appear on a real-time leaderboard, as well as have a chance to be a contestant onstage.
“We are committed to providing our guests with quality entertainment across their cruise journey,” said Craig Steyn, vice president of onboard revenue operations of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Our guests will now have the chance to be part of the iconic, Emmy® Award-winning ‘Wheel of Fortune’ game show. Not only will it bring the same excitement from the TV classic, but guests will also have the opportunity to play along for a chance to win some great prizes along the way, including a free cruise!”
Launching first aboard Norwegian Escape, the new, interactive game show will entertain the audience and provide opportunities to win a variety of prizes. The “Wheel of Fortune Interactive” game show will also be available aboard Norwegian Bliss, Breakaway, Dawn, Encore, Epic, Gem, Getaway, Jade, Jewel, Joy, Pearl, Sky, Spirit, Star and Sun.
Aaron Silverberg, SVP of Entertainment at TimePlay added, “When you combine a powerful brand like Wheel of Fortune with full audience participation, it takes entertainment and engagement to new heights. We are excited to roll out this new innovative experience on NCL’s fleet.”
Executive Vice President of Gameshows for Sony Pictures Television Suzanne Prete continued, “We’re incredibly excited to jointly launch this experience with Norwegian Cruise Line because it’s the first time that we’ve done a deal for an interactive game of ‘Wheel of Fortune,’ for a cruise ship. It will give us a unique opportunity to expand this beloved brand beyond mobile and grow our dedicated fanbase to include cruise travelers.”
